There were various workshops and lectures of many sleep -related concerns for adults -and even in children -that elicited interests from symposium guests.
PSSM also cited the 10 Commandments of Sleep Hygiene , according to the World Association of Sleep Medicine or WASM , such as having fixed bedtime and waking up time, no daytime sleeping in excess of 45 minutes , avoiding excessive alcohol intake 4 hours before bedtime , avoiding intake of caffeine such as those coffee, tea , most sodas , including chocolate 6 hours before bedtime ; avoiding heavy , spicy , sweets 4 hours before bedtime , using comfortable bedding , finding comfortable temperature when sleeping inside a well-ventilated room, blocking out distracting noise and les light as possible and limiting the use of the bed to just sleeping.
This is why the PSSM reiterates the important elements of good sleep , which are ” Duration ” or the sufficiency of sleep to become well, rested and alert the following day , ” Continuity ” which means sleep time should be continuous and unbroken ; and ” Depth ” that sleep should be deep enough to be restorative or invigorating . Quality sleep , the PSM said , is very crucial to one’s good health and quality of life . It said that good quality and invigorating sleep is important for people’s day to day functioning , even in children for their overall wellness and development .
